Welcome to this week’s self-care guidance for 2nd – 8th December 2019.
One of the signs that you need self-care is that you can’t relax or slow things down.
When our to-do list becomes long, and when we feel time is short, we become overwhelmed. We put ourselves under pressure to do as much as possible without taking a break!
In my experience, that’s when things start to go wrong. Things break, cups smash, silly mistakes are made and things seem to take twice as long to get done.
When we stop and take a breath, or have a cup of tea, or go for walk, we reset ourselves. When we come back to our to-do list, we seem to get through it quicker.
Sometimes we need to add in break after every two to three things on our to-do list.
Neroli is an essential oil that comes up when we feel like we don’t have a choice. Often, we feel like we have no choice but to plough through our to-do list without taking a break.
But we do have a choice, and neroli helps us to see that.
“The life we want is not merely the one we have chosen and made. It is the one we must be choosing and making.” – Wendell Berry
Neroli’s fragrance is deeply embedded in the psyche and offers a quality of emotional renewal through making different and empowered choices. A choice point is any place in your life where you would like to behave differently.
Do you need to make some choices that would stretch you.
Neroli’s Blossoming Heart Affirmation: I make my choices from the stillpoint within.
The stress management technique for this week is to declutter! Go through your home or office, a little bit at a time, and decide what you need and what you ned to let go of. Decluttering helps release stagnant energy and frees you up from holding on to things that no longer serve you.
